A Standard in Cuba



Standard "Pennant" at work in Cuba

Phil

 

Just got back from a weeks holiday in Cuba and whilst in Havana spotted the attached Standard (or at least what was a Standard). Not sure what model it was but it looks to be much modified as the ride height appears to high.

 

Fabulous holiday, its a must visit place for any old car enthusiast.

 

Kind regards

Thanks Colin


Its a Pennant at the rear, and so is the front panel, which means that the front wings have been replaced at sometime with a pair from a Standard 10. It certainly seems to have replacement suspension, bumpers and engine/transmission. Lets hope it gets some bodywork repairs soon!


The import restrictions forced onto the Castro government means that most cars of the 50's are patched up and are still running in Cuba, as this example adequately demonstrates.
